Welcome to the Bushwalking Manual

This manual provides guidelines and information for safe and enjoyable community-based bushwalking across Australia. The manual is provided by Bushwalking Victoria with contributions from other state and territory peak bushwalking organisations.

NOTE: Australian government health warnings relating to coronavirus (COVID-19) currently restrict non-essential travel including vacations and group outdoor activities. Group bushwalking trips should therefore not be undertaken at this time. 24 March 2020
